Health debate is needed

Re:  “Victoria ruffles UBCM feathers”

The resolution on for-profit medical clinics in question deserves full debate on the floor at this week’s Union of B.C. Municipalities (UBCM) annual convention. It has never been debated in the two years that Victoria and other councils have attempted to raise this critical issue. Canadians believe everyone should have equal access to health care. But the growth of for-profit medical clinics threatens the future of Medicare. As stewards of their communities, municipalities have a responsibility to protect public health care services on behalf of their residents.
